Washington, DC: Following reports that twelve people were killed in a terrorist attack at the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, Congressman Mike Turner, President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, released the following statement:  

“Today’s terrorist attack on the offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine was an appalling act of barbarity and an assault on the values our Alliance stands for,” said Turner.

“The slaughter of journalists and the law enforcement officers trying to protect them is an outrage, and I utterly condemn the perpetrators of this carnage.

On behalf of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, I extend our sympathy and condolences to the families and friends of the victims.”
